Join Shaun Bryant for an in-depth discussion in this video What you should know before watching this course, part of AutoCAD: Preparing Drawings for Revit Linking.
- [Instructor] So what should you know before you start this AutoCAD Preparing AutoCAD Drawings for Revit course? Well there are some certain things that you should know and you should have maybe done already. One of those is to make sure that you've done the AutoCAD Essentials course here on the website as well. Then you know all of the terminology and the methodology of AutoCAD itself. There's the AutoCAD 2017 Essentials course and there's also the AutoCAD 2018 Essentials course.
AutoCAD 2018 is currently the latest version of the AutoCAD software and that's the version of AutoCAD that I will be using during this course. When it comes to Revit, again you should have attempted the Revit Essentials course here on the website as well. There is a Revit 2017 Essentials course and there is a Revit 2018 Essentials course as well. Make sure you attempt those as well so that you know the basic methodology and more importantly the terminology in Revit as well because the terminology between AutoCAD and Revit does differ.
They are two different products and there's certain things that they do differently, so it's worth knowing all of that information. Also what you should know is I will be using Revit 2017 project files, RVT files. The reason I'm using the older version of Revit not the current version is because once you've upgraded your Revit project files to Revit 2018 that basically means that they cannot be read by 2017. So the whole idea is if I bring them out with Revit 2017 files everybody using Revit 2017 can also do this course as well, so let's get you going and into the course preparing your AutoCAD drawings to go into Revit architecture.
